TRAFFIC NYC 2008 Domain Auction Results

Targeted T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Domain Conference in New York City 2008

What follows are the results of the domain auctions held at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. domain conference in New York City this year:

Overall, three auction houses were selling domains at TRAFFIC NYC 2008:

Rick Latona Auctions, Aftermarket.com and Moniker.com.

Results after the fold.

Rick Latona Auctions

It was Rick Latona's first live auction and he did quite well, although there were a few problems at the beginning of the auction. He has posted his thoughts on what went well and what didn't work out along with the auction results on his personal blog.

It has to be said that some domains were only sold in Rick's auction because he owned many of those domains himself, so he was able to lower the reserves when bidding didn't go as high as expected.

DomainTools.com/Aftermarket.com/Thought Convergence

Total Results of Moniker's Extended Online Auction: $907,649

Total Results of the three Moniker Domain Auctions: $3,971,899

All in all, a cool $4,820,699 worth of domains changed hands in the TRAFFIC NYC 2008 domain name auctions (around $3,900,000 without Moniker's online auction). This represents a significant drop from last year's auction results, where Moniker alone achieved more than $10 million in sales, but the economy has changed since then. The domain market has been standing its ground so far. Once again, I feel very confident that the market will continue to grow as will the value of generic domain names.
